KJ Lift Quick Question

Going to order the Frankenlift II Premium Kit for GAS KJ tomorrow.

Is there anything else I need to order online to get max lift with this kit? Spacers, etc?

Clevis?


Wanting to fit 31x10.5x15 tires.

I did some research, just wanting to check before ordering as to be sure I dont forget anything.


Thank you!

Nothing else
Can't add clevis etc as it would be too much lift
with those tires you'll lose quite a bit of power so may want to think of regearing in the near future

All front shocks are the same no difference at all
Front springs if going with Frankenlift then just what you have
If building your own then you can go with OME 790s up front , they are the ones for the CRD and will handle the weight of the aftermarket bumper and winch

Alright, so the frankenlift reuses old struts / springs? I was explained it was new parts!


Blah, im so confused.

Someone had suggested if putting an ARB on the front to go with the frankenlift 2 for crd, rather than gas for added support up front.

Thanks for the help

No Frankenlifts uses all new springs/ shocks etc
If you were to use the CRD Frankenlift it would hold more weight BUT would not give you as much lift since you can't lift a CRD as high as gassers

Some of us have built our own "Frankenlifts" using CRD OME790 springs and gasser Franky parts

So Frankys for gassers use 927 springs rated at 400 lb and will hold up a ARB, did mine for 100,000 miles
